In July HBO’s Game of Thrones will return to Paint Hall Studios in Belfast in Northern Ireland, where seasons one and two were filmed, to begin shooting their third season.

In addition to the studio, the show plans to utilize two new purpose-built 44,000 square-feet sound stages in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter, as well as the Linen Mill Film Studios in Banbridge, for additional filming.

As they continue prepping sets, they are also looking for thousands of extras to appear in the show.
